Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6\[a^{1/x}\gt b^{1/x}\] divide \(b^{1/x}\) both sides and get \[\left(\frac{a}{b}\right)^{1/x}\gt 1\] taking log both sides \[x*\ln\left(\frac{a}{b}\right) \gt 0\] since \(\ln\left(\frac{a}{b}\right) \gt 0\) for \(a\gt b\), dividing it both sides wont flip the signs : \[x\gt 0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2but after taking \(\ln \) on both sides it should be this ? \(\dfrac1x \times \ln\left(\dfrac{a}{b}\right) \gt 0\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6fixed : \[a^{1/x}\gt b^{1/x}\] divide \(b^{1/x}\) both sides and get \[\left(\frac{a}{b}\right)^{1/x}\gt 1\] taking log both sides \[\frac{1}{x}*\ln\left(\frac{a}{b}\right) \gt 0\] since \(\ln\left(\frac{a}{b}\right) \gt 0\) for \(a\gt b\), dividing it both sides wont flip the signs : \[\frac{1}{x}\gt 0\] Multipilying \(x^2\) both sides gives \[x\gt 0\]
